It's part one of the Odyssey!!! In this episode I introduce you to Odysseus' son and wife, Telemachus and Penelope. Telemachus, with the help of Athena, is a on a mission to find information about his father.
A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
